A square wire loop 15.0 cm on each side carries a clockwise current of 6.00 A.

Find the magnitude of the magnetic field at its center due to the four 1.20 mm wire segments at the midpoint of each side. 

B = ____________ T


Expert Answer

Step 1


Length of each side of square = 15 cm

Current = 6 A

Length of element wire = 1.20 mm
